Carol has sent me a snap of a recent find; a lovely Coronet card. I wish I knew the secret country op-shop she volunteers at! She gets the best buttons! The loose button at the top of the picture is a grey variation of the same design.
If you collect Australian plastic buttons, check the ‘Rex’ page. I have re-written it in light of new research into Reginald Norris’s casein manufacturing efforts in the 1930’s.
I also have new confirmation of a Beauclaire/Leda design due to spotting a card of buttons for sale. It was a “doh” moment, as Homer Simpson would say when I realised had a variation in my Leda collection all along.
And finally, a new tailor’s button. I’ve mentioned Murdoch’s before; this version is marked “Murdoch’s in Park St. Ltd.”
